"Grow in Peace has been a blessing to our family. The teachers are always smiling and engaging with the children. The facility is beautiful, safe, and clean. The programs include lots of playtime and are grounded in God's word.

"Our two daughters have been at Grow in Peace for over a year and we do not have enough words of praise: The genuine love and care from the teachers is sincere. The meals from the kitchen are healthy and varied. The activities offered are a perfect mix between outdoor time, gym time, crafts, books, songs, and learning. The teachers continuously go above and beyond to care and teach our kids. If you are looking for top-notch care for your children to experience God's love, I would highly recommend Grow In Peace." -- Michelle and Chris
